Prolotherapy

Prolotherapy is a medical treatment that involves injecting a hypotonic solution into the area of damaged, degenerated or inflamed ligaments, tendons and/or joints. Prolotherapy can also involve using natural substances as irritants to cause an immune system response which stimulates the formation of new connective tissue thus creating strengthened tendons and ligaments surrounding joints.

Prolotherapists often use substances such as dextrose, phenol and glycerine in this process although any allergenic substance can be used. Prolotherapy is derived from a Latin word meaning Proliferate (grow), it conjures up images of things proliferating like tumors or cancers; Prolotherapy however refers to something growing healthy cells instead of cancerous ones.
